Mt. Maculot | Batangas

Mt. Maculot (706+ MASL)

Cuenca, Batangas

Personal Insights:

At last, I finally meet Mt. Maculot in Cuenca, Batangas. It has been a dream come true! I have been hearing about the beauty of this mountain but I never got the chance to climb it due to demand in travels and events. But now the wait is over and yes indeed! The beauty of this mountain especially this Lenten Season (though I was never got the chance to to the Grotto Traverse as planned).

For Your Information:

Mt. Maculot is located in Cuenca, Batangas. 2-3 hours away from Manila. Mt. Maculot is know for its "Rockies" and overview of whole Taal Lake, Mt. Makiling and Tagaytay Highlands on the other side. Plus its one-of-a-kind 7-Eleven, a "sari-sari store at the camp site and in every pitstop (if I'm not mistaken, there were 8 stores with buko (coconut) juice and halo-halo offered to all hikers who pass by for P20-25 per order.).

In order to get there. You have to go Buendia and take a bus going to Lemery (You can also take bus from Cubao). In our case, we took a bus going to Lipa and it took for about an hour to less than 2 hours to reach the toll gate. We got of the bus in front of Jollibee. Then we crossed the street and walk to the left and took a jeep going to Poblacion.

From Poblacion, the first thing that you will see is the market and the road leading to Mt. Maculot. You can buy to the market and buy some stuff for your stay in the campsite. Don't forget to buy "Majo", it is the best bread I have eaten. It 's like the bread from Bread Talk.

From the market, you can take a tricycle and it will take for about 5 minutes for you to reach the outpost where the jump off is located. I suggest to take a walk and do it as your warm up.

From the outpost you have to register and pay P10.00.
